Album Notes
The Message captures the spiritual sound of Abbey Rader and two members of his quartet, John McMinn and Noah Brandmark. The album is their first trio recording. It follows 2013's Reach for the Skies, a runner-up for Album of the Year by Avant Music News. On this session, the longtime collaborators push each other through relentless explorations, employing unique instrumentations in their quest for musical unity. The Message was recorded in January 2014 during a live performance on Evenin' Jazz with The Real Tracy Fields at WLRN Miami.

Abbey Rader - drums, percussion
John McMinn - tenor sax, piano, piccolo

“Abbey Rader is an unheralded legend of free jazz.”
- Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

“The intrepid and unfettered spirit of the 1960s jazz is alive and thriving in the 21st century and works by the likes of Abbey Rader and his colleagues are the reason why.”
- Hrayr Attarian, All About Jazz
